Iron 0.05-55.00
Magnesium 0.001-0.020
Manganese 0.01-1.00
Molybdenum 0.01-35.00
Niobium 0.01-6.0
Nickel 25.00-100.0
Phosphorous 0.001-0.025
Silicon 0.01-1.50
Sulfur 0.0001-0.01

1.3 This method has been interlaboratory tested for the elements and quantification ranges specified in section 1.2. The ranges in section 1.2 indicate intervals within which results have been demonstrated to be quantitative. It may be possible to extend this method to other elements or different composition ranges provided that a method validation study as described in Guide E2857 is performed and that the results of this study show that the method extension is meeting laboratory data quality objectives. Supplemental data on other elements not included in the scope are found in the supplemental data tables of the Precision and Bias section.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific safety hazard statements are given in Section 9.
